Section 24 of the Finance (No. 2) Act 2015
Many landlords will be aware that from the 2017/18 financial year mortgage interest tax relief on personally owned properties started to be cut back.
This essentially means that, by 2020/21, mortgage interest costs will not be deductible when calculating taxable profit and landlords will only be able to claim tax relief on any interest paid at the basic rate of 20%. The result could be that those with high levels of borrowing against their properties may end up operating at a loss.
If you are in such a situation, it is important not to panic and remember that there are many landlords going through the same situation. Firstly, we suggest talking to a qualified accountant as much will depend on what tax bracket you fall under alongside other specific circumstances.
Should you be considering the sale your property because of the extra tax liability or you simply want to exit the buy-to-let market, we would be happy to have a no-obligation discussion about your options and make a competitive offer where required.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- How long has Property Solvers been established?
Property Solvers Limited was created in 2005 as a simple website for property sellers in search of fast solutions across the UK. Today, the company largely operates across the East Midlands, South Yorkshire and Greater London. We work with all types of property owner from those struggling to sell on the open market; people who only want a private sale as well as overburdened landlords, commercial vendors, developers and landowners. The Directors have over a decade of experience working as professional landlords and are confident about finding a fast, workable solution to any property related problem.
- What is the Property Solvers auction alternative service?
We are motivated cash buyers in search of properties across the UK. With the ability to purchase property in any condition within very short timeframes, we offer a direct and confidential private sale with no auction house commissions or legal costs to pay.
Before discussing any form of sale, we will start by having a no-obligation discussion about your situation to ensure that all the possible options have been explored.
- Can I check your Company's Background?
Yes – you can search for us on the Companies House website (our company number is 05878362) and also look up our details and approved credentials on the Property Ombudsman, National Association of Property Buyers (NAPB), UK Trading Standards, Information Commissioner's Office and HMRC Money Laundering websites. Please also feel free to request any certification and/or contact details for these organisations via firstname.lastname@example.org or leaving us a message via 0800 044 3733 (lines are open 24/7). We take our reputation very seriously and ensure that any concerns will be addressed quickly.
- What are the advantages of using Property Solvers over an auction service?
As committed cash buyers, we are often able to transact much quicker than a typical auction sale without any administrative, marketing and legal hassles. For example, in most cases, selling at auction means that you may have to wait some weeks for preliminary enquiries, the legal pack to be compiled and the property to be listed in the catalogue. This will be followed by private viewings, open days and professional surveys prior to the fixed auction date. The "Future Auctions" organisation estimates that this could take up to 3 months from start to finish.
Should you agree to sell through Property Solvers, we will take a very proactive role in ensuring that the sale moves forward in line with your timescales, however urgent this may be. For example, we can exchange and complete in as little as 7 days and provide a cash advance where required. There will be no unnecessary intrusions or hidden costs and we will execute the transaction with complete confidentiality.
- What are the cost differences between the Property Solvers service and that of an auction house?
In the table below, we have highlighted some of the main cost-related and practical differences:Auction SaleProperty Solvers
Legal Fees = £400-£750
(some lawyers may charge extra to handle buyer enquiries)
Legal Fees = £0
(we use specialist solicitors who frequently underake fast property sales)
20 to 28 day exchange and completion
(excluding the marketing period)
Exchange and complete in as little as 7 days
(we are cash investors ready and eager to buy)
Auction Fee = 1-3% of purchase price No Auction Fees or Other Commissions Promotional, Advertising and Property Listing Costs = 0% to 0.5% No Promotional, Advertising and Property Listing Costs Initial Viewings = 1-2 Initial Viewings = 1-2 Public Open Days = 1-3 Public Open Days = 0 Professional Surveys = 1-3 Professional Surveys = 1
Note that online auctions tend to operate differently and will usually not charge you a fee (although there are usually administration and other listing costs). Regardless of whether you choose an online or traditional auctioneer, please ensure you read through the small print carefully – especially any "special conditions".
- Can Property Solvers offer a cash advance?
Yes – whilst requiring some extra paperwork, this can certainly be arranged.
- Can Property Solvers show proof of funds?
Yes – whether we are buying ourselves or work with an investor partner, we will be able to demonstrate proof of funds prior to commencing the conveyance process and ensure that you are entirely comfortable with how the transaction will proceed.
- Will Property Solvers be able to beat any price offered by the auctioneer?
We will need to engage in our own research prior to discussing any offer and if we feel that the suggested reserve price at auction is fair and realistic, we will recommend that you move forward. Should our pre-auction offer be agreeable to you and any co-owners, we will cover all legal fees, disbursements and any other associated costs as well as offer a cash advance where required.
- How quickly can Property Solvers make an offer?
Our lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. After our initial conversation, we will engage in some research and come back to you very quickly. Should the offer be acceptable, we will cater to your timeframes and conduct the sale in an entirely confidential manner.
- What if I already have my property on at auction?
In this scenario, we would normally not interfere with the process as it would normally result in a withdrawal penalty to cover the auctioneer's costs (for listing your property, inspections, advertising, legal documents and handling of pre-auction enquiries).
However, should the property not have sold at auction we would be more than happy to investigate further and provide a cash offer that will match or even exceed the set reserve value. We appreciate that you may not be willing to disclose this price, in which case our offer will be based on both our own investment criteria as well as the current condition of the property.
- Would you consider portfolios?
Yes – we are wholesale buyers and would certainly consider multiple property purchases anywhere in the UK. We have online tools at our disposal and local associates to be able to make offers shortly after your initial enquiry. Note that we will still be able to cover all legal expenses and ancillary costs regardless of the number of properties being purchased.
- Do you buy properties with problem tenants or other management issues?
Yes – as experienced landlords we can buy properties with sitting tenants who may be causing difficulties and breaching tenancy agreement terms (causing damage, nuisance or disorder for example). We will also acquire properties that have rental arrears or other ongoing financial issues.
- I still have other questions?
We welcome any further questions and queries by filling our simple form, contacting us by e-mail email@example.com or leaving us a message via 0800 044 3733 (our lines are open 24 hours / 7 days a week).
